Rolling out today for The Ascent on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC is both a free patch for all players, alongside an explosive new paid offering – that of the CyberSec DLC pack. If you need a reason to jump back into Veles with a bang, these are it.
The CyberSec Pack is the new explosive collection from CyberSec Mega – the largest mil-tech manufacturer and main supplier of CorpSec. It add in two new weapons, a new tactical, four new pieces of armor and four new animated weapon skins. You’ll find it sits at a price of £3.99 / $4.99 / 4,99€ from the store of your choosing.
Included are all of the follow:
- 2 NEW WEAPONS: NEWT MGL / Grenade Launcher; RECOIL / Ballistic burst rifle

But alongside that is The Ascent’s Patch #5. Free for all players, it introduces a brand new Transmogrification feature, allowing Indents to change their appearance to match the visual style of any armour currently in their inventory by visiting the Stylist and paying a small fee. Once a visual style is applied, players can equip any armour based on their gameplay priorities whilst keeping their customised look!
Co-founder and Creative Director of the studio Arcade Berg said: “We’re really excited to be able to add more content for our amazing community. We’ve been working hard since launch to improve the game as much as possible and listening closely to the community feedback and what people are keen to see, so we are really happy to be able to share additional features like the transmogrification option for players.”
“We have some great new content planned over the next few months, which we recently outlined in our post-launch Roadmap,” added Tor Frick, Creative Director and fellow co-founder of Neon Giant. “We’ll be introducing features such as NewGame+, new VO lines for side missions, a free Winter Pack in December and a paid update to the Chongqing Pack and a brand new Cyber-Warrior paid pack early next year, so keep an eye out on our community pages for updates. As always we’d like to thank our wonderful community for all their support – we hope everyone enjoys the new content!”
It goes without saying that you’ll need a copy of the base game of The Ascent. The Xbox Store will sort you out with an Xbox copy of the game. It’s on PC too.
